The Ultimate Racing Simulator, 17 April 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
Although this game is now close to being a teenager, it still rewards in a way no other game can.
I play lots of racing games, rfactor, Live for speed, GTR, and I love them all, but none of them can quite match the sheer magnificence of this beast.
Most ten year old games are a mere memory now, possibly fun at the time, but not something you would consider employing to pass the time nowadays, even Doom, whilst groundbreaking in it's time, has now been superseded and improved upon a thousand times, so why part with your hard earned money for a game so old?
The answer is simple, no game released before or after this one will give you the same feeling of immersion.
After you have installed all the graphical updates, sound updates, Splashed out on a nice new G25 and devoted months/years/decades to mastering these cars. You can immerse yourself in an experience which is as close to real motorsport as you are ever likely to get without of course doing it for real.
Yes, it is old. Yes, it is incredibly difficult, but when you get it right it just gives you a feeling no other computer game can.
Lots of games look real, and sound real, but this one just feels real.
